Mike Posner Bit by a Rattlesnake During Walk Across America

Mike Posner has been hospitalized after an unfortunate run-in with a rattlesnake on the Colorado leg of his journey to Walk Across America. He was bitten on his left ankle and had to be airlifted by a helicopter to the hospital to receive treatment. He’s doing well and getting plenty of rest!

As you may already know, Mike is currently on a mission to walk across the United States by foot. If you all remember, this is the same foot that he suffered a metatarsal stress fracture back in February 2019 before his walk which was originally set to begin on March 1st. He had to postpone it for 6 weeks and officially began his walk on April 15th in Asbury Park, NJ and is making his journey all the way to Venice Beach, CA. He is currently on mile 1,800 of 2,833, according to his Instagram bio.

We’re so glad that you’re okay, Mike. Heal up soon and keep going! We Love You!

He took to Instagram on Thursday to share a video of him in the hospital along with an explanation of what happened and when he’ll be able to resume the walk.

Whatup doe!!! Crazy day yesterday! I had just crushed 16 miles and was going for 8 more when I got bit by a baby rattlesnake! That venom is no joke! I got to the hospital and got the anti-venom in time. Shout outs to G and Mike from the chopper team and Bo and Cassie and Whitney (my nurses). I’ll be here a few days and will not be able to walk for several weeks but enjoying the AC and the nice bed, haven’t had those in a while Hahahaha! Can’t wait to get back on The Walk! KEEP GOING!!!!!!

In the Instagram video below, Mike explains why he’s doing the walk.

I’m walking because I wanted to do something hard. I wanted to do something epic. And I want my life story to read like a Hermann Hesse novel, not an instruction manual.

“We fear discovering that we are more than we think we are. More than our parents/children/teachers think we are. We fear that we actually possess the talent that our still, small voice tells us. That we actually have the guts, the perseverance, the capacity. We fear that we truly can steer our ship, plant our flag, reach our Promised Land. We fear this because, if it’s true, then we become estranged from all we know. We pass through a membrane. We become monsters and monstrous. We know that if we embrace our ideals, we must prove worthy of them. And that scares the hell out of us. What will become of us? We will lose our friends and family, who will no longer recognize us. We will wind up alone, in the cold void of starry space, with nothing and no one to hold on to. Of course this is exactly what happens. But here’s the trick. We wind up in space, but not alone. Instead we are tapped into an unquenchable, undepletable, inexhaustible source of wisdom, consciousness, companionship. Yeah, we lose friends. But we find friends too, in places we never thought to look. And they’re better friends, truer friends. And we’re better and truer to them. Do you believe me?” Excerpt From The War of Art Steven Pressfield & Shawn Coyne When I was launching my music career, I kept this passage ^ printed out and taped to the wall of my little “studio” in the basement. We don’t fear failure as much as we fear success. There’s only one thing to do with fears, run straight at them. KEEP GOING.
